They tell us that we lost our tails
Evolving up from little snails
I say it's all just wind and sails
Are we not men, we are Devo
Are we not men, D E V O

Smoke on the water
And fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

(I'm A Man) I'm a boy
(I'm A Man) Well, I'm your mother
(I'm A Man) I'm a one night stand
(I'm A Man) Am I by
(I'm A Man) I'm your slave
(I'm A Man) I'm a little girl when we make love together

Hey, hey, hey
Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it
Better, better, better, better, better, better, yeah

L. A. Woman, you're my woman
Got my mojo risin', Mr. Mojo risin', hey

In-a-gada-da-vida, honey Don't you know that I love you In-a-gada-da-vida, baby Don't you know that I'll always be true
Hey Joe, where you goin' with that gun in your hand
Hey Joe, where you goin' with that gun in your hand
Gonna shoot my old lady
Caught her messin' 'round with another man

Yoddle-ay-ee, yoddle-ay-he-hoo. Yoddle-ay-ee, yoddle-ay-he-hoo.
Yoddle-ay-ee, yoddle-ay-he-hoo. Yoddle-ay he-hoo.
Yoddle-ay-ee, yoddle-ay-he-hoo. Yoddle-ay-ee, yoddle-ay-he-hoo.
Yoddle-ay-ee, yoddle-ay-he-hoo. Yoddle-ay he-hoo.

I'm an ordinary guy burnin' down the house

I'm hot blooded, check it and see
Got a fever of a hundred and three
Come on, baby, do you do more than dance
I'm hot blooded, hot blooded

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break, every step you take
I'll be watchin' you

Darling, you gotta let me know
Should I stay or should I go
If you say that you are mine
I'll be here 'till the end of time
But you gotta let me know, woh, woh, woh
Should I stay or should I go

But it's all right now, in fact it's a gas
But it's all right, Jumpin' Jack Flash is a gas, gas, gas

People try to put us down (talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we get around (talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (talkin' 'bout my generation)
Hope I die before I get old (talkin' 'bout my generation)
This is my generation (talkin' 'bout my generation)
This is my generation, baby (talkin' 'bout my generation)
(talkin' 'bout my generation)
My, my, my, my, my, my generation (my generation)
Well, talkin' 'bout my g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-g-generation
